My plan to post daily has already slipped. It’s hard to find the time when on the move every day. Here’s an update on the last few days..
KTAO Solar Radio Station in Taos, NM.. the show was great but crowd was small. I ended up driving the wrong way (40west) when leaving ABQ & added at least another 2 hours onto my trip to Taos. Needless to say I rolled in late to KTAO with 7 min to set up & get out of my gym clothes. But alas, there was an opening band so I sat back with a Stella & a buddy & talked about how good snowboard/ski boots should fit. (did I mention no shower yet… no hugs please
I woke in the morning & headed to a reflexologist in Taos. My feet adore her! My whole body is aligned & empowered after a session with Cynthia. Thanks girl. & thanks for coming to the show.
So, I took those empowered feet & rolled down to ABQ again to play Marble Brewery for the first time. The show was awesome! Everyone was so supportive.. pounding on tables & sticking around for the full show. Definitely check this place out again on another run thru NM.
The next morning, Sunday, I found a hot yoga class in Rio Rancho & rocked vinyasa with a big group of people. The class was super hot! My yoga mat got so slick from sweat that I had to take child’s pose a bunch instead of the warrior flows cause I was slippin. Good for the ego && easy on the quads. Oh lunges..
My good friend, Kenny, & I found a great place for dinner. Vinaigrette! A bottle of red wine from Rioja, delicious salads & a nummy mushroom stew. MMMmMMMmMmmmm. There’s really nothing like a beautiful dinner with friends. right??
Next morning I packed it up & headed to Taos Ski Valley/ Boot Doctors where I proceeded to learn about a proper fitting boot. Thanks guys. I know I interrupted the clinic to get fitted for my snowboard boots, but hey- They fit tight & are super stiff. I will rock the mountain this year!! Who knew a half size smaller would feel so good. Thanks Charlie~
Onward. I hauled ass up to the Book Haven in Salida, CO for an awesome house concert in a bookstore. Prob 40 people came out & you could hear a pin drop. 2 of my favorite things about performing..
1. when people laugh at my jokes
2. when people get a visceral reaction to the tunes.
Both are always readily available with the fans in Salida. Thanks y’all! esp Jerry for helping me load in & out & for being such a badass. Next time, fly fishing lessons.
See u in Vail Valley, Manitou, & Denver soon folks!
